This wonderful tempera painting features two youthful figures confronted by a world containing a variety of society and culture. Marxist intellectual Guy Debord described capitalism's overwhelming hold on consumerism as 'the colonization of everyday life' meaning capitalism's infiltration into urbanisation and leisure.
These two figures are aware of their own identity and how they have choices to make. They are also aware of how they may be misled as the media and advertising construct ideals of lifestyle and conformity which appeal to the subjective narcissistic fantasies and his or her desire to fit and belong.
